Today the world is all about connected devices, social media and internet. Building a mobile app also means think about a back-end. Sometime ago, mobile developers need to build their own back-end providing data storage, user authentication and some REST API. Nowadays back-end as service like Firebase can handle server side tasks and give interesting features to Mobile Applications.
In this talk we will explore Firebase for mobile applications. Then, after a brief explanation of the Firebase Structure, we will move into the technical part of the talk, where attendees will see how easy it is to integrate Firebase in Android Applications. Finally The talk provides some Android Firebase examples about authentication, using data storage, security and working offline.
